The Washington Post found video of an armored military truck being thrown from a freeway offramp on Wednesday, another stunning representation of the metastasizing violence in Egypt this week.
As protestors chanted and threw rocks on the street below, the truck seemed to fall from out of the sky, crashing upside down onto the pavement. Moments after crowds surrounded the truck, a rocket landed in the general vicinity.
WaPo also found a photo of the falling vehicle, tweeted by Adel Abdel Ghafar:

Violence in Egypt has increased dramatically in recent days, as the country’s military-led temporary government clashed with backers of deposed President Mohamed Morsi. President Barack Obama released a statement Thursday morning condemning the violence and canceling military exercises between the two nations.
